Home Economics Work With Low-Income People: July 1, 1961 - June 31, 1967.
Kira, Marian M; Alexander, Frank D.
A survey of home economics work with low-income people in New York State lists the types of activities undertaken in 51 of the state's 55 counties (the other four did not respond). Programs reported most often by counties were donated foods (surplus food); homemaker services programs; parent programs; and public housing tenant programs. Programs reported least frequently were food stamp programs; migrant family programs; and school programs. The use of non-professional aides in homemaker services and allied activities has greatly enriched the program, providing an intimate and informal contact with households facing particular problems.
